THE ELLA FITZGERALD
The full 5-piece group, including female and male vocals, saxophone, piano, double bass and drums. This option is the most flexible and most exciting, equally capable of soothing ballads or up-beat classic swing, contemporary jazz-pop or funky blues. Featuring the seductive vocals of lead singer Isabelle Reynaud in both English and French.
THE BILLIE HOLIDAY
Duo of female vocals and piano. Perfect for creating a late night, smoky piano bar atmosphere; for more down-beat, relaxed affairs.
THE STAN GETZ
In the great tradition of instrumental jazz, a trio of saxophone, double bass and drums. This combo specialises in latin-influenced jazz and bossa nova, bebop and funky grooves.
